REVIEW:
This is an incomplete amateur video shot from the right hand upper tier of seating, almost adjacent to the stage using a Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10. The video quality is quite good although does suffer problems in a few areas. Firstly the lighting and strobing can be a bit much at points and secondly the taper is quite far away and occasionally zooms in too far and the camera cannot deal with it, so the shot becomes quite blurry and unfocused. These problems are only occasional though and for the most part the video looks good, with an average level of zoom. The audio quality however is excellent considering the built in microphone quality and compression format of the camcorder. The sound is clear, punchy and suffers no distortion at all. The DVD is incomplete as the taper knew his battery would only last just over an hour so chose a few songs to film throughout the show until the battery finally died just before the end of Everlong.

REVIEW:
A short DVD featuring the TV highlights of the Isle Of Wight Festival. There is a short interview with Suzanne Vega about the festival before three songs. Video quality is decent but does suffer from compression artifacts and macroblocking somewhat due to the source broadcast. Audio quality is however very good, clear and punchy with a nice mix.
